5 Fun Things to Do with Kids in Harrodsburg Kentucky

 photo GLINTstudios_2015_ShakerVillage_00067_zpso4t9flzt.jpgWe love to find gems around the state and bring people just enough information to go out and explore that area.  Something to learn, pure fun, museums, parks.....places to eat.  Here are some suggestions for spending a day (or two) around Harrodsburg with your kids.

2. Go for a ride on the Dixie Bell River Boat.This is a cozy paddlewheeler that fits 115 passengers and cruises along the Palisades. It's a really lovely ride, such gorgeous natural views. Tickets are just $10 for adults, $5 for kid age 6-13 and guess what.......kids 5 and under ride free. The cruises run from late April through October, Tuesday – Sunday between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.  Relax, take in the sights and learn the history of the area.

For just $5 per person, you can do that at the Anderson-Dean Community Pool. It has slides, a zero-entry area and a water playground.  Your kids will love it and you won't break the bank.

It's $40 per person for an hour of riding.  Bring cash! They don't accept credit cards and keep in mind, they have a 12 year old minimum wage. 
 
5. Dine at the Olde Bus Station - especially if it's a lovely day because they have a big covered patio for outdoor dining.   Or, there's counter service - my kids love places with counter service. It's breakfast and lunch so plan accordingly. We are talking sandwiches, onion rings, traditional breakfast items - home cooking!
